It was 20 something degrees here this morning and I still saw about 5 bikes on the road including one fool with an openface 1970s style helmet.  He must have had an icredible amount of  snot must have frozen solid on his face

Nah, with the chilly weather I've been favoring the CBR600RR, of all things. My Hawks have no wind protection and take forever to warm up. I've never seen someone riding with HIppo Hands.

Hippo Hands are a NY delivery dude staple. They must really work

Everyone in China rides with Hippo Hands, and it ain't even that cold there. Also, the motorcycle cops out here have them.

This is true. There are many good lookin' women here...or all the ugly ones stay home ha

1974 Kawasaki Z1 with a fork from a ZX-10, widened swingarm and zx6  wheels (180 tire).  I think it would have looked even sweeter with similarly sized wire spoke wheels all while retaining the upgraded brakes.  That all being said this is a beautiful bike.

Good God. Impressive. It's been 40-50 and I'm not even willing to go wrench in the garage.

Me on my Yamaha XV920R.
Taken about 1995.
I still have the bike, but it's stripped down and in several boxes.

It was never a pretty bike but this is the friggin best looking Zephyr 750 I have ever seen.  Much better than butchering a 40 year old bike trying to make it look "cool".  They should have thrown these wheels on that Z1

Does anyone have any info at all on what this bike is?  I have to assume it's 100% custom.... but if anyone had details on who built it and where, or even just a name for this style bike.  I have wanted a motorcycle for years and was hoping to do my licensing and training when the weather gets better... and this is the best-looking-bike I have ever seen in my personal style....  so anything I could learn about it and how I could find something similar in looks would be amazing.

 

Cheers.
